Due to limited resources, request for classroom use and faculty/staff equipment loans have first priority. For planning purposes, all requests should be made at least one week in advance. Multiple media needs for any major event should be made two or more weeks in advance. And there must be a commitment (by campus organizations) to take full responsibility for the safe operation, storage, and security of equipment belonging to Media Services.
Student organizations requesting multi-media equipment for a program or event must follow the guidelines listed in our Media Services Policy for Multi-media Equipment Request by Student Organizations. The guidelines includes having an advisor, faculty, or staff member contact Media Services to verify that a student or organization is using equipment for an event before a request is met. A copy of the policies is given to the Office of Campus Involvement to distribute to the clubs and organizations on campus.
The following Multi-media equipment is provided if available:
